A 35-year-old Norwalk woman faces a felony charge following an unusual incident that police say was caught on video surveillance at Norwalk’s Manresa Island Power Plant.
According to Sgt. Jim Boff, Renee Blaise of 69 Lexington Ave., was reported to be walking naked near the facility at around 9:40 p.m. on March 7 together with her two young daughters, each of whom were “clutching her from behind.”
Blaise faces charges of risk of injury to a minor and criminal trespass.
The mother reportedly had told her children “something about the Lord’s water,” Boff said, instructing them to sing and to fast. Police arrived and Blaise was dispatched to a psychiatric facility, Boff said.
The Connecticut Department of Children and Families, together with Norwalk police, intervened on behalf of the kids, Boff said, securing them clothes and blankets en route to Norwalk Hospital.
Before dawn that same day, police say Blaise had been cited following an incident at home with another daughter, aged 18. In that instance, Boff said, Blaise is said to have asked the teen to not use her cellphone for the night, shaking the girl and throwing the device out of a window because it had “evil energy” and then laying on top of the girl.
Blaise was held on $20,000 bond and scheduled to appear March 21 in state Superior Court in Norwalk.

She was released on $1,000 bond and scheduled to appear March 21 in state Superior Court in Norwalk.
